Mexican Jay, Peña Blanca Canyon

Terrible news, I’m afraid. There’s a wildfire currently raging in the Atascosa Mountains/Pajarito Wilderness area and the indications today are that it has completely taken out the whole of my favorite birding site, Peña Blanca Canyon. Anyone reading this blog will know how often I go there and how special this place is to me. I’m absolutely heartbroken.


Another brilliant day of birding and photography in my favorite area, the Atascosa Highlands and Pajarito Wilderness.

It’s time we talked about the elephant in SE Arizona’s room – Common Black Hawks.

An outstanding day and night of target birding, with 88 species, lots of specialty birds and some really fabulous moments.

A great day and night of birding in the Santa Rita Mountains. I should have tried harder to find one more species, because we ended on 99!
